Community Interest Company (CIC)

The CCAB is a Community Interest Company.  Establishing the CCAB as a CIC strengthens its focus both on reducing consumer detriment and acting in the interests of the community as a whole.

'We will act in the collective community interest, operating an open and transparent approach. We will welcome the use of the results of our scheme to ensure markets work well for consumers and businesses; parliamentarians are supported in their work and consumer advocacy is enhanced'. 

Asset locked body

The asset locked body is responsible for distributing the assets of the company in accordance with the community interest statement in the event that the company is wound up.

The Trustees of the College of Fellows, the CTSI charitable and benevolent society, act as the asset locked body for CCAB.
